Yosemite National Park Security Kicked Up

We´re at Code Orange: The second highest level of terror alert. And because of that, California Governor Davis is doubling security at major buildings, bridges and ports in preparation for possible terrorist reprisals.

The local area is also part of that increase in security.Extra patrols have been set up around Hetch Hetchy Reservoir in Yosemite National Park because of the looming war with Iraq. The reservoir supplies water to San Francisco and other California cities. Access to the road leading to the dam has been restricted.

The action came as President Bush declared that Saddam Hussein would face military force if he does not leave Iraq within 48 hours.
